This week’s Cook the Book Fridays recipe from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen was, thankfully, an easy one. I just finished my first round of cookbook edits this week, so last weekend, I was a little consumed with that and didn’t have much time to cook. Add to that the fact I spent the whole day on Sunday teaching French cooking classes (it seemed like a good idea at the time I booked the space – I didn’t know my book editing timetable at that point!), and I actually had NO time to cook. So this was perfect!
I whipped this up pretty quickly (I used canned chickpeas) and enjoyed it as a snack as I planned my week ahead. Was it the best hummus I’ve had? No (I actually found it a little dry – perhaps I didn’t use enough of the reserved liquid but I found I needed a bit of olive oil to make it the texture I prefer). Was it good? Yes. Did it remind me that I should be making this from scratch more often? Yes.
Get the recipe for David Lebovitz’s hummus on p 60 of My Paris Kitchen.
